The team tackle Race for Life’s Pretty Muddy

Altrincham-based Jefferies Solicitors has once again raised a significant amount of money for charity – this time by conquering the Three Peaks challenge and Race for Life’s Pretty Muddy.

In what has turned out to be a bumper month for charity donations, Jefferies Solicitors raised nearly £1,500 in June for the Children’s Adventure Farm Trust (CAFT) and Cancer Research.

Solicitor Michael Mawdsley took part in the National Three Peak challenge, scaling the UK’s highest mountains, Ben Nevis (1,344m), Snowdon (1,085m) and Scafell Pike (978m) in under 24 hours.

To round off the charitable success, an eight-strong team, led by director Nina Ramsden, tackled Race for Life’s Pretty Muddy at Tatton Park in Knutsford. Joining thousands of women dressed in pink from across the North West, the group ran the 5km obstacle race for Cancer Research.

Nina Ramsden comments: “At 10,000ft altogether, taking part in the Three Peak challenge is no mean feat. Michael did a great job completing this in 22 hours 50 minutes and raising £1,000 for CAFT – our chosen charity at Jefferies Solicitors.

“Following on from our running success last year, we once again took part in Pretty Muddy to show our commitment to Cancer Research. We’re proud to get involved in such a worthwhile charity – it’s one that remains close to our hearts.”

CAFT was established in 1985 by Founding Patron Tim Grundy. It is based in the grounds of a beautiful 17th Century Farmhouse in Millington, Cheshire and offers free adventure breaks and activities to children who are disadvantaged by illness, disability and poverty.

The LSB’s proposals for legislative reform: let’s be clear

Caroline Wallace LSB

The publication of the Legal Services Board’s vision for legislative reform of legal services regulation on 12 September has generated a healthy level of interest and debate. This can, on the surface, seem a somewhat dry subject. However, it has an impact not just on existing regulated practitioners, but also on providers of legal services more generally, as well as everyone who uses or benefits from an effective legal sector. And, let’s face it, that’s all of us.
